In all that we do –– and in everything that we put into our bodies –– purity and quality should be at the top of our priorities. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to opt for the highest quality options in everything that we consume. Factors like price, convenience, and familiarity influence what we choose to purchase and put into our bodies. Sometimes this is for better, and sometimes this is for worse.

When it comes to the essential oils that you use, however, it’s important to know that you have a choice. The OLiO team is proud to be an official reseller of dōTERRA® CPTG® essential oils. All products from the dōTERRA® brand are 100 percent assured and tested for their purity and potency, and they’re designed to support your wellness in nearly all aspects of your life.

Learning More About The dōTERRA® Brand

In this blog post, we’ll be diving in and exploring why team OLiO has partnered with a company like dōTERRA®. With so many essential oil brands out there these days, it’s important to know what separates one company from another, and that’s exactly what we’ll be covering.

If you have any questions about dōTERRA® essential oils, how to use essential oils, or you’d like to know about joining Team OLiO as a wellness advocate, we’d leave to speak with you! Contact us at any time.

Let’s get started.

Why The dōTERRA® Difference?


Though we’re a biased source, we encourage our blog readers and those researching the dōTERRA® brand to look into the potency of their oils. One of the main differences that sets dōTERRA® apart from other essential oil brands is that they’re incredibly potent and devoid from adulteration. This means that you can use one or two drops of a dōTERRA® essential oil and get similar effects to four, five, or even more drops of the same type of oil from a competing brand.

Other distributors of essential oils purchase them from a middle man, meaning that they have no control over the potency and quality of the oils. In many cases, these companies claim that they are “pure” because they’ve added inferior oils to more expensive oils. In reality, these products are heavily adulterated and lack the potency that dōTERRA® is renowned for.

CPTG® Rating

When you search throughout our site and dōTERRA® ‘s website, you’ll come across the term “CPTG.” This stands for Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®, and it refers to the relative purity of dōTERRA® ‘s essential oils and broader line of products. This rating guarantees that what you’re using is a 100 percent pure essential oil extract and that you’re getting the best possible product for internal, topical, or aromatic use.

To achieve a CPTG® rating, oils must go through seven different types of testing:

  • Gas chromatography
  • Mass spectrometry
  • Microbial
  • Organoleptic
  • FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy)
  • Chirality
  • Isotopic and heavy metal testing

Though these types of tests might not mean much to you, the important takeaway is that these systems of checks and balances are put into place to ensure that dōTERRA® ‘s products are as pure as possible. A third-party company also tests every batch to ensure purity and legitimacy, resulting in a consistent, reliable, and incredibly pure product. No other essential oil company can make this claim, and no other company has the CPTG® rating.

Ethical Sourcing

When you look at a bag of coffee beans, you’ll often see the term “fair trade,” and you’re probably familiar with what that means. For those who aren’t familiar, fair trade is generally defined as “trade between companies in developed countries and producers in developing countries in which fair prices are pair to the producers.”

dōTERRA® takes a similar fair trade approach to their business model, but with a unique aspect. It’s called “co-impact sourcing,” which means that their sourcing of oils has a positive impact on both the farmers who grew the original, unrefined product, and the end-users of the finalized product. It’s a win-win model of corporate responsibility: dōTERRA® guarantees a fair price to the farmers for their high-quality products, and dōTERRA® guarantees an essential oil made to the highest degree of quality.

In short, co-impact sourcing results in medicinal, holistic products that work for users while helping developing nations work in a progressive direction with fair prices.

They Can Be Used In A Variety Of Ways

Due to the CPTG® rating in all dōTERRA® products, certain essential oils are safe to consume in topical applications. Some oils can even be ingested such as On Guard®, a popular essential oil blend designed to fortify the body’s immune system. While lesser essential oil brands make oils that are only safe for aromatic applications in a diffuser, dōTERRA® is proud to make a variety of versatile oils that can be used in multiple ways.

Certain oils can even be diffused, applied topically, and ingested.
